Or just reduce the armor so you can play whatever setup you want to.

While it is true that Radiation does +50% against Infested Sinew, it does -75% against Fossilized.  As a result, it can never be the best option against Hemocyte because the Health Multiplier is always in play regardless of armor value.  Playing with the equation for the Damage Multiplier, one can see that the Corrosive multiplier will always be higher than the Radiation multiplier for any non-negative armor value:

In fact, when not stripping any of a Level 75 Hemocyte's armor (1476), Corrosive does around 2.74x the damage of Radiation.

...Now I admit I'm still a pretty big newb when it comes to understanding the priority order for determining weakness but I took another look at the formulas and I have come to realize I have basically forgotten almost everything I learned in just about every math class I've taken since Jr High/Middle School... and I was up there in my college years... all for nothing now lol

Both apply multiplicitively.   So -75% and +50% is     1.5*0.25 = 0.375

Not sure how that was ridiculous. The boss is weak as hell if you armor shred, and any weapon can 1 or 2 shot it.

I'm wondering if the kiddo's dash would strip armour. Theres that skill in Madurai that strips armour when toy dash through something

If you're talking about Sundering Dash then I beleive thats an Unairu Ability.... and yeah it should work 2 or 3 Dashes should remove all the Armor off of everything since it works in percentages.

 

Yep, it works perfectly fine for stripping the armor on it. I generally go for a full five or six dashes through the center of the heads just to ensure it works properly.

So let's review the comment in question shall we?

So what exactly does it take to strip armor? A specific setup! At least to some degree; be it a single mod, a particular frame, helminth infused ability, etc. So by using 'an armor stripping setup' you are no longer playing 'whatever setup you want to' but, 'an armor stripping setup that may be close to the setup that you want'. Seeing as Armor Stripping isn't something you can do with just a consumable you do in fact have to make it part of your setup. Which is no different then the suggestion that your comment was in response to.

A single melee weapon doesn't really make up your entire setup. Besides, good luck hitting the boss with any regular melee weapon. Your melee weapon slot is essentially free anyway.

For me it is.... However other players like to go Full Caveman and roll with Melee Exclusively...
